I am ready to talk about the #silencing of over 25,000 psychologists in Australia with regards to the safeguarding of children. We are threatened, harassed, coerced to provide only one #therapy to children or else! They tried to force me into this I said NO. Any journalists???
I am ready to talk to journalists, lawyers, bloggers and am now writing a book on this topic/issue. I am ashamed of my colleagues and the board who wilfully ignore the immature prefrontal cortex, the autistic brain, and their own ethics and guidelines #rogd #gender #transgender
I have not been able to speak openly about this until now as I have been continually #silenced, harassed, threatened, coerced by other #psychologists #therapists, my board, governing agencies and other professionals. It’s time to reveal what is happening to clinicians worldwide

Australian Judges to now oversee #transgender #teen treatment is a positive step forward and welcomed in order to safeguard children who are unable to give full #gillick #informedconsent theaustralian.com.au/nation/judges-…
Thank you @KLBfax for your #bravery and standing up for vulnerable children who deserve #safeguarding, should have been given full #gillick informed consent and should have had their immature prefrontal cortex, as a consequence of child development, taken into consideration
This decision supports the UK, Finland, and Sweden in an international shift towards caution for #children and safest ethical medical practice. The Australian #gender clinic remains unidentified at the moment

New paper out @Climate_Policy on how #gender is considered in climate #adaptation planning. bit.ly/India-gender

We (@nityarao63 @divya_s_s) started with a question "does 'mainstreaming' gender everywhere mean gender is nowhere?" @iihsin @developmentuea
We examined 28 sub-national climate action plans in India (the State Action Plans on Climate Change or #SAPCCs) and asked:

1⃣ How is gendered vulnerability framed and reported?
2⃣ What policy approaches are used to build local adaptive capacities?
We draw on gender & intersectionality in adaptation scholarship @N_Kabeer @MargaretAlston @MaryCTHall @Farhana_H2O @edwardrcarr @nightingalea @AroraJonsson and others to show how different framings to recognize gendered vulnerability leads to different policy approaches. Image

I don't feel like a girl right now. I just feel like a human. I guess this is progress? 🤷‍♀️

(thread)

#TransWomenAreWomen #transgender #gender
Is... is this.... is this just what it feels like when everyone sees me as the gender I am?
I just moved to a new city where almost nobody knew me pre-transition. Nearly everyone is meeting me for the very first time – as a woman named Shuli. So what else would they call me? Why would they question my womanhood?

Natuurlijk is het niet te bevatten, laat staan te geloven, dat alle Overheden en Media glashard liegen over #corona. Politici en Media vormen immers het officiele kanaal van berichtgeving voor mensen, en daarmee kennen mensen ze autoriteit toe. De idee dat deze politici en 1/

I am trained in #developmental #psychology and #neuroscince. I have been screaming the #teenagebrain is #underreconstruction from the rooftops! Am totally ashamed of my peers who wilfully ignore this. #neuroplasticity #frontallobes #psychologists #gender #rogd #trans #detrans
The teenage brain is under reconstruction. The prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until minimum aged 25. A bit longer for males. The prefrontal cortex is largely responsible for: decision making, planning, organisation, focusing, impulsivity, aka executive functions
Managing emotions, predicting consequences of one’s choices and moderating social behaviour. This is #science #facts Anyone who says otherwise is brainwashed by #ideology Shame on any professional who ignores this #gender #trans #detrans #shame

Oltre al fatto che avete cercato sempre di ostacolare qualsiasi programma #antibullismo con la balla della #teoriagender che è una fissa di #popefrensis che risale ai tempi dell’Argentina che votava #unionicivili che poi state sempre a questionare su questo papà di sinistra⤵️
tirato per la tonaca da dx e da sx per lo stesso motivo cioè essere di sx Ma quando mai? Il Papa è il Papa e dice cose da Papa. Sul #gender dice cose che dovrebbero piacere alla dx invece che alla sx se solo le dichiarazioni fossero riportare fedelmente e allora cosa c’è come ⤵️

werde gerade gezwungen, einen text @derspiegel zu lesen.

über solche verlinkungs und verquirrlungsstrategien könnte lange gesprochen werden.

nur ein grund von vielen, warum ich solches zeux nicht mehr referenz nutzen kann. ImageImageImage
@derspiegel oh. wow... hier gibts also argumente, wie es dazu kommt, dass #MichelFoucault keine referenz mehr kann...

ich muss also "zeitung" lesen, um verstehen zu können, was im #internetz nicht mehr verlinkt werden darf? Image
@derspiegel sensationell...

das meinte ich, wenn ich sagte, dass die gleiche QUALition, das gleich, gleich durchziehen kann:

#Autigender. Having a gender that is so heavily influenced by autism that one’s gender and autism cannot be unlinked.

The discovery of this word has propelled me down an introspective rabbit hole. 🧵

#ProbablyNeurodivergent #neurodiverse #autism #gender
I’m 99% certain I’m autistic, minus 1% for no official Dx yet.

I’m used to feeling like humanity is something I observe, but don’t always share. So when others describe what I’ve long experienced but never had in common, it feels like a revelation.
Descriptions of autigender make perfect, relatable sense to me. Most of what I’ve read so far are feelings I’ve had my whole life. I’ll try to explain.

1/ Shared few insights emerging from community-based #COVID care that some communities have begun in #Adivasi populations in #Chamarajanagar with support from #ZillaPanchayat in live video interaction with #Karnataka #GramPanchayats thanks to @gokRDPR
2/ #COVID19 care needs to be rational & #evidence-based but also respectful & dignified; these are not aspects we have done well with in our #HealthSystem & hence need special attention;
3/ Dignified & respectful care requires an awareness of diverse socio-economic & cultural contexts at individual, household, neighbourhood & societal levels; we haven't substantively engaged with (#caste #gender #disability #sexuality #privacy )-aware care at systemic level

I would like to ask people to talk about “identities” instead of “labels” when talking about descriptions of yourself or others that are self-chosen and proudly-carried. I am thoroughly sick of saying people talking about “why label yourself”; “I don’t want to label my child” etc
when talking about important diagnoses such as #autism and #ADHD that are utterly essential to self-understanding and often become proud, self-chosen identities as a child grows up, and it’s even worse when people talk about #gender and #sexualities as “labels”.
Ultimately, “labels” have no function for the self; they exist purely for interactions with others. That doesn’t mean they can’t be useful and empowering, but to my mind it’s a huge misapprehension to describe #gender and #sexualities in this way and plays right into the idea

1/ Joining some wonderful people from what I am seeing as a diverse group of researchers at the #EditorialBoard of @PLOSGPH; journal has given itself the tall order of “addresses inequities in public health and makes impactful research accessible to all… (1/n) #Threads
2/ In words of @paimadhu "the journal will amplify the voices of underrepresented and historically excluded communities and prioritize equity, diversity, and inclusion at all levels"; I am highly skeptical of this,
3/ yet I am thrilled that a #PublicHealth journal would give itself such a vision; #Knowledge #Science #Evidence all reproduce the same kind of social hierarchies that drive unfair accumulation of resources in our society

#Gendern, ein Vorschlag:

Derrière les attaques délirantes contre la campagne anti-homophobie pourtant bien mièvre du gouvernement, #VersaillesFamillesAvenir, greffon de @LaManifPourTous fondé fin 2013 par Fabien #Bouglé. ⤵️
Lancé dans les municipales de 2014, #Bouglé est élu conseiller municipal de Versailles avec sa colistière Valérie D'Aubigny. Parmi les recalés de sa liste, déjà Céline #Jullié ou Gwenola #BillotDeLochner (fille de), mais aussi Cyrille #DeLaRochère (cousin de) ou Benoît #Sevillia.
Sitôt élu, #Bouglé fait parler de lui en demandant ce que le maire prévoit pour "lutter contre l'infiltration du lobby LGBT au sein de l'école". "Parle-t-on d'aller vérifier l’orientation sexuelle des animateurs périscolaires ?" s'étrangle l'opposition.

1) Since 2013, I´ve been talking to all kind of ppl about "transition" of kids, including their parents. The most important reason for the existance of "No Corpo Certo" ("In the right body") is sharing with them things that "gender" doctors and activists do not share with them.
2) Collateral effects, other approaches, History of "trans" medicine", profits, lobby tatics, the points of view of "non-affirming" parents, of detransitioners, articles of truly compassionate professionals...
3) There is a plethora of things they do not know, even when they are very well informed, even when they did all the research they think they did. Unfortunately, even Google is cheating them. And one of the things they seem to forget is pretty obvious, is that...

A thread on erasures and #archivalsilences.

How can we 'see' people whose culture was meant to be suppressed in the historical record?
Wet plate photography in the 1800s made tattoos disappear. This photographic method "used by European settlers served to erase this cultural marker" and Māori intangible heritage. 1/
petapixel.com/2018/07/09/wet…
When women are erased from the historical record because "historically it has been assumed that uncredited [books] were made by men," their bodies tell a different story. #gender #archivalsilences 2/

Wir möchten unsere volle Solidarität und Unterstützung für die Organisatorinnen des Lesbenfrühlingstreffen LFT 2021 ausdrücken. Ihnen wird von LGBTIQ+ Orgas Transfeindlichkeit und sogar Rassismus vorgeworfen. Bereits zugesagte Fördergelder werden zurückgezogen.

(1/7)
Und wie genau äußert sich diese angebliche Transphobie? Indem "Trans*Lesben*" nicht explizit eingeladen und/oder erwähnt wurden (in anderen Worten: nicht weibliche Personen, die behaupten lesbische Frauen zu sein wurden NICHT in den Mittelpunkt gestellt).

(2/7)
Das nächste "Verbrechen" der Organisatorinnen besteht darin, dass sie #detrans #Lesben eingeladen haben, damit sie von ihren Erfahrung bzgl. Transition und #Detransition sprechen können.
